Hey, remember me? I just spent four days in San Francisco at the wonderful, friend-filled, informative, fun, overwhelming conference known as BlogHer. I stayed busy every moment but still didn't meet everyone I meant to meet, photograph everyone I wanted to photograph, or attend every session I wanted to attend.
I've put a few of my photos on Facebook and I'll try to put a more comprehensive batch on Flickr sometime tonight.
I have a full week of work and other activities, but I'll do my best to write up my post-conference impressions between now and Friday.
For now, I'm still adjusting back to Central time and the beastly heat and humidity of Kansas City. I need to get ready for work and gather up my extra swag to share with co-workers.
A big shout-out to everyone I met at BlogHer. I think I set a record for most hugs received in a four-day period (and I'm really not a hugger - that's just now nice everyone was).
If you couldn't make it to the conference for one reason or another, I urge you to start clearing next July's schedule and saving your pennies now. It just keeps getting bigger and better every year.
Finally, I have been purchasing a lot of books written by bloggers lately and for various reasons have extra copies of several of them. I've going to give away one per week for the next three weeks, starting with Off the Beaten (Subway) Track: New York City's Best Unusual Attractions by Suzanne Reisman. Just leave a comment on this post and you'll be entered to win. And no, you can't have my autographed copy!
